Our goal is to ensure that every player has a spot on a team; however, if registration numbers are high and a division is full, players will be placed on a waitlist based on a if parents send a follow-up email request to be waitlisted to our registrar. Parents are strongly encouraged to register early to avoid disappointment, especially at the U15 and U18 levels.
Once registered for the season, players who want to play Rep A or top tier levels for the U11-U18 Divisions need to sign up for September Evaluations here, starting in June. You must be registered for the Avalanche season first in order to participate in tryouts.
For details about fees, payment methods, payment options and the refund policy, please see information posted in the FAQs sections below.
After reviewing the information above and below, should you have any more questions about registration or the online process, please email our registrar at email@example.com.
AVOID WAITLISTS: SIGN UP EARLY
It may be necessary to cap registration numbers in a division, depending on how many players sign up. We encourage all families to register early, particularly at the U15 and U18 levels. If you are unable to register a player, it could be that your division is already full; please contact the registrar ASAP and request to be placed on a waitlist (if required). Please include the player name and division in your correspondence. Waitlist priority will be given based on the email date. If you have any questions about registration or the online registration process, please email our registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Tryouts" Evaluations Registration
All U11 to U18 division players who want to be considered for placement on a Tier 1 Rep or Tier 2 House team must participate in the pre-season "tryouts" evaluation process at the start of September. Evaluations are for those seeking team placements on U18 A & C1, U15 A & C1, U13 A & C1 and U11 C1 & C2.
NOTE: Evaluations and "tiered" team placements are not part of the younger U7 and U9 divisions; no evaluations are offered or required at this level and there are no additional fees.
Evaluation registration opens in June 15 and closes on August 15. Fees are payable online when you register for evaluations here. The evaluation fees are as follows:
- Player Evaluation Fee: $105
- Goalie Evaluation Fee (U11-U18 divisions) evaluation fee: $55
The U11-U18 tryout evaluations start in the first week of September after Labour Day and schedules will be made available in late August for those who have signed up. If U11-U18 level players do not sign up for evaluations, they will be placed on the lowest tier team for that division.
